In the same way that carpenters and dentists need good tools to do their jobs properly so to do geographers.

In this unit you will be learning about and using the basic tools that make up the geographer's toolkit. It is these tools that will enable you to observe patterns, associations, and spatial order. 

Maps are essential tools of geography because they assist in the visualization of space.  Other tools and technologies, such as satellite-produced images, graphs, sketches, diagrams, and photographs are also integral parts of geographic analysis.
